How To Make Chocolate Cheesecake Bars
This dessert is the dream of any chocolate lover since it’s super delicious and easy to make. Here is everything you need to do to enjoy the best chocolate dessert:
- Start by making the chocolate crust. Melt the butter, then add it to a bowl with the rest of the ingredients for the crust.
- Mix using a silicone spatula, then press the dough into the prepared baking dish.
- Bake the crust for 10 minutes; remove it from the oven and let it cool.
- Make the cheesecake filling. Add the cream cheese, sour cream, and eggs to a large mixing bowl and mix until well combined. Then add the rest of the ingredients and mix until there are no visible lumps.
- Spread the cheesecake filling over the cooled crust and bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
- Once it’s baked, remove the cheesecake from the oven and let it cool.
- Meanwhile, prepare the keto ganache. Add the heavy cream to a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil.

Tips For Making The Best Cheesecake Bars
- I recommended sifting the flour and sweetener before adding them to avoid lumping.
- It’s important to leave your cheesecake bars to set in the fridge before slicing and serving them. You can also leave them overnight in the fridge.
- Make sure that you don’t overmix the cheesecake filling because it will create cracks while baking it.
These triple chocolate cheesecake bars are great and served simple as they are, but you can also top them in many different ways. Here are some ideas:
- Fridge: you can store these chocolate cheesecake bars in an airtight container for about 7 days.
- Freezer: you may also freeze these delicious cheesecake bars. Wrap each cheesecake bar in plastic wrap, and freeze them for up to one month.
When ready to enjoy, thaw the sugar-free chocolate bars in the refrigerator overnight.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Chocolate Keto-Friendly?
Because they are packed with sugar and other substances that increase the carb count, most chocolate bars you buy at the shop are not keto-friendly. So if you are following a keto diet, you can enjoy any dark chocolate with at least 70% cocoa content. White and milk chocolate that is high in sugar should be avoided.
Is Cheesecake Keto?
Traditional cheesecake recipes are not keto since they use sugar, graham cracker crumbs, or cookie crumbs in their preparation. But thankfully, you can still enjoy a delicious cheesecake while following a ketogenic diet by making a few simple changes to the ingredients.
